Excellent Documentary to Celebrate 'Twenty-Years of "The Osterman Weekend"
15 April 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 2004, this documentary was released to celebrate twenty-years of "The Osterman Weekend". This movie was the last work of the great director Sam Peckinpah, who had been in the ostracism for five years in Hollywood. With the testimony of the cast (Meg Foster, Rutger Hauer, Craig T. Nelson, Chris Sarandon, Helen Shaver, Cassie Yates), the producers and other participants of the shootings, many interesting information, some of them funny, other sad, about the film and mainly about the situation of Sam Peckinpah in those times, are disclosed to the viewer. Sam had health problems, apparently caused by drugs and alcohol abuse, and having a hard temperament, blaming the producers for any failure in his films, he was forgotten by the cinema industry. "The Osterman Weekend" was his last chance to prove how magnificent his work was. The result was a great film, dated in the present days, but ahead of time in 1983. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "From Alpha to Omega: The Making of The Osterman Weekend"
